Calendar Functionality[edit]

I like the idea of having our User Group items in a calendar, but cannot figure out how to use this feature as I am planning to add information about the July, 2019 meeting. If I try to click on any of the events listed here, the template coding opens and not the event itself. Can somebody help fix this and provide instructions how to use this? Thanks. --- FULBERT (talk) 14:47, 23 June 2019 (UTC)

Pinging User:Shikeishu or User:Shikeishu for possible help with this. I think this new calendar is really helpful, and don't want it to stop being used just as it has started. Thanks. --- FULBERT (talk) 13:01, 27 June 2019 (UTC)
I just added it! I basically just copied the code for the June meeting and changed the link. I don't understand what you mean by the template coding opens itself - could you elaborate? :) Maybe you're using the visual editor? Then it's hard to change a template like this one. --Shikeishu (talk) 15:39, 30 June 2019 (UTC)

Past events?[edit]

It'd be nice to update this list to note past events as well, unless those live somewhere else? For example, there have been LGBT+ meetups at the Wikimania and other major conferences. -Another Believer (talk) 22:48, 30 October 2019 (UTC)

Agree, this would be a useful running log as well as a diary. Maybe we could have past year sections as collapsed, just to keep things tidy? This probably means moving the 2020 section to the top, so everything is intuitively in descending date order. -- (talk) 22:51, 30 October 2019 (UTC)
Or just clearly note Upcoming events vs. Past events w/ section headings? I feel like there was a list of past Wikimania meetups somewhere... -Another Believer (talk) 22:53, 30 October 2019 (UTC)
However that means having to mark stuff as expired, as opposed to just adding future events to the running diary and never touching it again. Laziest option always gets my vote. -- (talk) 22:56, 30 October 2019 (UTC)
